A belief that because Black men have been through so much, black women should at the very least be there for them.
As Wesley Snipes (clearly the black man) reacts to Latifah’s rudeness, she gets angrier and angrier until she flips out on them. v=b Kkawm8_U1Q[/youtub Jungle Fever came out in 1991.
Since then, Spike Lee has moved on to permanently being the angriest Knicks fan ever while interracial pairings have steadily risen. I am not saying that black women don’t hate on black men for finding the Coco to their Ice T.
Bottom line (no pun intended), no one can keep it in their pants anymore, regardless of race.
With all the interracial stuff going on, all humans will probably be beige in about a hundred years anyway (thank you, Russell Peters) and this argument will be long moot.
I’ve never met a stronger person who stands by their will and their moral values.”Thicke continued by stating that race was something of a hurdle towards the beginning of their relationship.“I met her and we were 16 years old and she was the president of the Black student union and I was just a silly White boy who didn’t understand or have compassion.”When asked how he felt regarding the media’s opinion that African American women are better off dating white men, Thicke responded;“I think that’s ridiculous.
There are so many good Black men out there that are hardworking, decent, and handsome, you know? You have to give love to get love.”Interesting indeed….I mean the type of people who make sly comments about zebra couples or throw around words like “race traitor.” For many, I think black women come to mind.At least the stereotype of the angry black woman, this time with her anger focused on the black man/ white woman couple.“When our people were enslaved, ‘Massa’ placed his Caucasian woman on a pedestal,” Scott writes. I know for a fact that several of these women asked Aaron why he was with me instead of a white girl! Recently, I stumbled on an article that put some perspective on this troubling issue.“She was spoiled, revered and angelic, while the Black slave woman was overworked, beaten, raped and farmed out like cattle to be mated.” Jill Scott’s reaction to the blkman/whtw couple is much more realistic than Queen Latifah’s. When I compare the “wince” to the hateful and hurtful things said to me by black men and white women, because I am 1/2 of interracial couple, I wonder how black women have held on to the title of “most hateful” for so long. He was the smartest person I’d ever met, funny, tall and attractive. I quickly learned that for some black men and white women, our racial makeup changed everything. Over the course of many conversations, I came to realize that many of these men truly felt that as a black woman, I needed to “be there” for the black man. My skin color bears the same perceptions and history that their skin does. Essentially implying, and in one instance, saying outright that there must be something wrong with him if he felt that he could only date a black woman and not a good white girl. At the time, the deepest friendships I have enjoyed in my life had been with women. Entitled “ His parents said, ‘Not with a white girl” actress Diane Farr writes in an op-ed piece for CNN’s Defining America series of her surprise when she discovered that her Asian boyfriend’s parents did not approve of his white girlfriend.A good example of this stereotype is Queen Latifiah’s character in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever .
